Hello everyone and welcome to Year 3! Your teacher is Mrs Etheridge and your TA is Mrs West. We will have lots of fun this year, I can't wait!
Your homework will be stuck in your homework book every Monday, when you bring it in along with your reading folder. The homework will be spellings and the children will have a test on Friday.
We do expect you to read at least 3 times a week and have a go at the challenges on Times Table Rockstars too. Still want more homework? The homework menu is on this page.
If you want to practise your spellings over the weekend, I have stuck in an overview of the spellings we will be doing this term into your homework book. It is also on this page.
Any questions or queries, my email is: firstname.lastname@example.org
